Al-Naqab Palestinians take their case to the Arab League

The remaining Palestinians in the Al-Naqab area, located in the southern area of the Palestinian territories occupied in 1948, are seeking to internationalise their case. They are also raising awareness about the racism they are subjected to by Zionists who are aiming to seize their land, forcefully expel them from it and relocated them to allocated areas that could be called racist “ghettos”, similar to those prevalent during Apartheid in South Africa.

In this regard, the Head of the Steering Committee of the Arabs of the Negev, the leader of the Arab Democratic Party and the former member of the Knesset, lawyer Taleb El-Sana, made a visit to the Arab League Headquarters in Cairo to inform Egyptian and Arab officials of Israeli plans targeting the Arabs in Al-Naqab.

In a statement made exclusively to “Quds Press”, El-Sana said that during his visit, he raised the case of the Palestinians of the Naqab with the Arab League. Moreover, during his meeting with the Assistant Secretary-General of the Arab League, Mohammed Subaih, he presented and explained the dangers facing the Palestinians in Al-Naqab, who are at risk of being expelled and dozens of their villages evacuated. This was the case in the village of “Wadi Al-Na’im”, the population of which is over 7,000. The same is happening in the village of “Ateer”, “Tel Arad”, “Al-Sura”, and other targeted villages in Al-Naqab.

El-Sana also added that he gave Subaih a letter written to the leaders of the Arab countries that includes details of the plans targeting Arab citizens in Palestine, especially the Praver Plan, which the Palestinians consider to be the most dangerous plan since 1948 in terms expulsion and ethnic cleansing. The letter also mentioned the consequences of these plans, which will lead to the destruction of dozens of Arab villages in Al-Naqab inhabited by over 40,000 people, as well as the demolition of 7,000 homes. The letter warns that the dangers have already begun through the most recent campaigns of demolition and expulsion in various areas in Al-Naqab.
